Currently Obsessed: Smashbox + Vlada Petal Metal Collection.

Currently Obsessed: Smashbox + Vlada Petal Metal Collection.

As part of my job to find the best makeup and beauty products, I test a lot of makeup.

I spend a lot of time online researching products; I go to Sephora, Nordstrom, CVS, Ulta and Walgreens fairly often to scope out what's new.

All of the makeup sort of looks the same after awhile and that's why I only truly highlight what I really like and what I think you will like. I would never want anyone wasting their time or money on makeup, skincare or any kind of beauty products that aren't going to work for them. 

Because I am gifted with a lot of beauty products to test for my site and different social accounts, I honestly don't buy that many beauty products. Well, I do buy the products that I regularly use or become obsessed with. So for me to take notice of a collection and buy a few pieces from really says something.

The Smashbox + Vlada Petal Metal Collection got me.

SPF Yourself: Smashbox Limitless Long Wear Lip Gloss SPF 15.

SPF Yourself is a series of posts featuring products that contain a sunscreen, or SPF, in them. Not only sunscreens, but body lotions, facial moisturizers, eye creams, foundations, tinted moisturizers, bronzers, hair care and more will be featured. Only the best in beauty with SPF!

Long wear, pretty colors and sunscreen? All in a lip gloss? Yes, please! Say hello to Smashbox's Limitless Long Wear Lip Gloss SPF 15.


Enriched with vitamins A, C & E and sea kale, lips are revitalized and nourished for a silky-smooth texture that’s never tacky or dry.  The formula really holds onto lips as it is applied with its larger than average, velour, contoured wand. One coat, and lips are good to go. It lasted me a good six hours while keeping my lip protected with the SPF of 15. 

There are ten soft and shimmery shades to choose from.

  • 24/7 - Sheer Raspberry
  • Boundless - Juicy Melon
  • Endless - Sheer Plum
  • Eternity - Shimmering Bonze
  • Enduring - Nude Shimmer
  • Forever - Whispering Pink
  • Infinite - Soft Pink Nude
  • Limitless - Shimmery Coral
  • Nonstop - Cool Raspberry
  • For Keeps - Sheer Baby Pink
